We brew a lot of different beers at Memphis Made. We currently brew Cat Nap, Fireside and Junt year-round. However, we also brew various seasonal, limited release and tap room only offerings. Hey, we even make a hard seltzer. We know...it's cool.
Here are some of our beers, past and present. Some of these beers will return while others may never be seen again. Drink accordingly.
Cat Nap (6.2 percent ABV)
When you go face down into this India Pale Ale, the hop aroma is so calming it will knock you out. Generous amounts of Eureka! hops will have you licking lips for more, with notes of mango, pineapple, and peach.
Fireside (5.1 percent ABV)
Brewed with a base of Munich malt and steeped with European hops, Fireside is malty and roasty on the front end with just enough balance. This accessible and delicious amber ale goes well with a wide variety of food, including chicken, burgers and spicy cuisine.
Junt (4.5 percent ABV)
This delicately-hopped cream ale is easy drinking. A healthy dose of flaked maize gives it a drier finish, leaving you wanting another sip.
FUN (4 percent ABV)
Who wants to have some FUN? With refreshing lime flavor and only 90 calories, our first hard seltzer is a light way to make it through a hot Memphis summer. Gluten free.
Current Limited Releases
Red Handed (5.5 percent ABV)
An amber ale with origins in the German alt style, but with a twist. It follows Reinheitsgebot (German Purity Law saying beer can only have water, barley, hops and yeast) until we added a little chicory. "Alt" is German for "old." This is a malty beer with a bit of hops at the end to give it balance. Pairs well with roast beef, chicken or lamb.
Drew's Day Off (6.1 percent ABV)
While Drew was out of town, we decided to re-brew our oatmeal stout recipe. This silky smooth stout is everything you ever wanted in a stout. A heavy body wraps you up for the colder months, while hints of chocolate and dried cherries put a smile on your face.
Memphis As Truck (5.9 percent ABV)
The two best beverages in the world are coffee and beer. So, why not put them together. We partnered with French Truck Coffee to bring you Memphis as Truck, a coffee stout made with Kossa Geshe coffee. The folks at French Truck turned these Ethiopian beans into a cold brew that was blended into our stout of oatmeal with chocolate and roasted malts. It's like breakfast in a glass, but at 5.9% maybe wait till noon at least. Or not. I'm not your dad.
The Judge (6 percent ABV)
Here comes The Judge! Here comes The Judge! Order in the court 'cause The Judge is in the building! You've been summoned to enjoy a chocolate-vanilla porter made with roasted cocoa nibs and Madagascar vanilla. This very judicious offering balances roasty malt notes with hints of vanilla and cocoa. It has a solid body and holds a great head at 6 percent ABV. So put on your Sunday best because The Judge's court is in session and there will be no objections.
Plaid ATTACK!!! (6.2 percent ABV)
This limited edition Scottish ale clocks in at 6.2 percent ABV. Its solid malt backbone comes from Marris Otter, crystal, chocolate and a dash of smoked cherry wood malts. This is balanced with a variety of UK classic hops to create a smooth drinking Scottish ale.
Alt-Radio (4.9 percent ABV)
We're celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Ronald McDonald House Radiothon on 98.1 the Max by releasing Alt-Radio, an Altbier brewed with spices. Memphis Made Brewing and Ajax Distributing are donating part of every case sold to the charity.
Out of Season/Past Releases
Huggy Bear (5 percent ABV)
This honey brown ale tastes like the warm embrace of a grizzly bear without all the sharp claws and the biting. Honey malt and darker roasted malts give it a sweet, malty backbone and a nice chocolate finish. This is a brown that comes in at 5 percent ABV so you can enjoy quite a few before knocking over trash cans and mauling hikers.
HUG (5.4 percent ABV)
We were having a hard time remembering the sweet embrace of a HUG, so we took that warm feeling and put it in a cold beer. This smooth wheat ale with late addition hops is sure to put a smile on your face.
Kitten Nap (4.8 percent ABV)
Kitten Nap, our spring seasonal beer, has all the flavor you want in a session IPA, but with ABV of 4.8 percent, you can spend the day with it. Brewed with Calypso and Lemondrop hops, this light golden beer has a fruity and citrusy aroma with a crisp, tropical fruit flavor.
Soulful Ginger (6.2 percent ABV)
A golden saison brewed with candied ginger and peppercorn. The ginger gives it a unique sweetness and spiciness. Light and refreshing. This summer offering goes well with many Asian dishes.
Uppercut (8.5 percent ABV)
At 8.5 percent, this Double IPA packs quite a punch. Brewed with Calypso and Bravo hops, it pairs a light bitterness and malty backbone with notes of citrus and pear. We also used a Norwegian yeast called Sigmund Voss to accentuate its smoothness and add an orange character. See you in the ring.
Shrunken Head (5.5 percent ABV)
For five years we have been making Shrunken Head just for the Science at the Pink Palace, but now we are releasing it into the world! Shrunken Head is a Belgian Wit that uses grains of paradise and orange peel to bring a spicy springtime punch into January. It's sweet and malty with traditional Belgian characteristics and a contemporary twist. When you taste Shrunken Head, you'll have no choice but to visit its namesake exhibit at the Pink Palace.
Cold Day In... (5.4 percent ABV)
Usually found stalking the watering holes of the great Northwest, this Cascadian Dark Ale offers generous amounts of Cascade, Centennial, and Falconers Flight hops that play across a subtle roastiness. Don't let this ale's dark side fool you, it's packed with lemon, grapefruit, and tropical fruit notes as well as the distinct floral and piney characteristics that define this unique style.
Orange Drewlius (6.1 percent ABV)
First brewed for National Repeal Day 2015, we put a bit of orange peel into our Drew's Day Off Oatmeal Stout. Smooth and malty.
Stout Junt (7.3 percent ABV)
We may have gotten carried away, but when Phillip Ashley Chocolates wants a beer it's time to get excited. We developed a stout that is so flavorful and complex that you'll notice something different with every sip. Stout Junt Mexican Stout was brewed with clove, cinnamon, cocoa nibs ancho and guahillo chilies then topped of with Madagascar vanilla in addition to four different roasted malts, including Chilean Perla Negra. So be prepared for a multicultural experience, Memphis style. From us and our friend Chef Phillip Ashley Rix.
Mempho Beer (5.4 percent ABV)
What's better than listening to some great music? Having a tasty beer, made just for the occasion, in you hand at the same time. Mempho Beer is a cherry ale that hits all the right notes. A dark cherry backbeat and Lemondrop hops keep the rhythm while the malt shreds on lead.
STRONGER THAN DIRT (4.7 percent ABV)
We are proud to present STRONGER THAN DIRT a session IPA so raw and unhinged your mind will drip out of your ears as you drink it. Cascade hops create a mind blowing experience, not unlike seeing the garage band legends THE MUMMIES live. 100% over-the-top garage punk in a can.
Plummer's Crack (6.2 percent ABV)
Plummer's Crack is a hazy and summery Belgian-style saison with Falconer's Flight hops. It is finished with a dash of plum puree to keep the pipes clear. So bend over and take a bow. It's time for Plummer's Crack.
3:30 on a Wednesday (5.4 percent ABV)
It's 3:30 on a Wednesday and it's time to seek shelter and a beer. You'll find both in this American Honey Wheat Ale. To honor of our great city's bicentennial we brewed this wheat beer with a double addition of Centennial hops and local honey. When you hear those sirens blaring, grab a 3:30 on a Wednesday and relax, it’s only a test. But don’t be caught empty handed. Grab a growler and remember; don’t be scared, be prepared.
Minute Man (6.3 percent ABV)
Memphis Made's take on the New England-style IPA, Minute Man quickly fills your mouth with juicy goodness thanks to generous amounts of Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe hops and then leaves you thirsting for more — whether you’re ready or not.
Ryevolution (5.8 percent ABV)
Strap in, keep your arms and legs close to the bar at all times and get ready for The Ryevolution. Not your typical rye IPA, The Ryevolution is the best mix of malt and hops creating an experience as fun as its namesake (but in your mouth). This beer is all spice and hops at 5.8 percent ABV. Made with 30 percent rye malt and four types of hops making the different flavors twist and turn (but, you know, in your mouth).

We brewed this light and easy-drinking beer for Gonerfest 17, held Sept. 25-27. While this year’s event is virtual, you can still watch the shows online with these 16-ounce cans designed by artist Kerri Mahoney.
Prince Mango (8 percent ABV)
This Zambodian IPA is adorned with traditional flavors and aromas of frickle pear, pink zorbel berries, and overripe mango. Flavors like this can only come from unearthly sources, or maybe it's the addition of way too much hops and local honey. You'll feel it's hazy effects as it takes you to another world and back.
Mark of the Yeast (8.5 percent ABV)
It took slightly longer than 42 months to bring about the reign of this beer, but our 666th batch is finally here in all of its devilish glory. The end times is nigh and it oozes with bubblegum and blasphemy.
Mr. Anderson (9.2 percent ABV)
A “Mid-Atlantic” barley wine, this strong beer finds the sweet spot between the hoppy American version of the style and its English cousin. Wherever you go, this beer is watching you.

We mashed our Greenswarden Hefeweizen with coconut and made this amazing tiny hand crafted beer.
Hop Swap (6.1 percent ABV)
We brewed this smooth IPA for our friends at Goner and Stax Records as they celebrate the Second Annual Soulsville Record Swap on Saturday, June 17 at the Stax Museum of American Soul. Brewed with Eureka and Zythos hops, Hop Swap is golden and cloudy with notes of citrus and fruit.
Arcas (4.5 percent ABV)
A roasty, malty brown ale named after the mythical Greek hunter who was turned into a little bear and put into the night sky by his father, Zeus.

DoubleSpeak (8.2 percent ABV)
Juicy hops (Eureka, Cascade and Citra) are watching you in this Double IPA.
Denali Dream (6.2 percent ABV)

Sieste de Chat (5.7 percent ABV)
See the description of Cat Nap IPA, but with a French accent.
Nut ReMix (4.9 percent ABV)

Lucid Dream IPA (5 percent ABV)
We took our Lucid Kolsch bill and piled in late addition Centennial hops to give our lawnmower beer a dank citrus hop kick. This is how we celebrated National IPA Day in glorious thirst-quenching fasion.
I Can't Believe It's Not Pale Ale (6 percent ABV)
This fine-tuned pale ale is a celebration of new world flavors. Packing a hit from Rakau hops from New Zealand and the Captain America of hops, Centennial, this beer brings an array of bitter dry, citrus and subtly-earthy pine flavors. A hint of rye spiciness supports throughout.

Just like its guitar namesake, Humbucker cancels out the typical overt bitterness and lets the purs flavor and aroma of the hops shine through. First served at Hopped II.
10 Gallon Hat (5.5 percent ABV)
This fruity and hoppy wheat beer was brewed with orange peel and honey wheat. The combination of Styrian Wolf and Mosiac hops give it the dank mango finish that will keep you drinking. Assistant brewer Adam Cagle made a 10-gallon batch for our Sidekick Series and now we've brewed it on a commercial scale.
Greenswarden Saison (8.1 percent ABV)
Spring is just within reach but you can go ahead and grab this saison with a citrus burst. Greenswarden Saison is the second beer we’ve done in what looks like will be a long series of beers to support Citizens to Preserve Overton Park. At first glance, the hazy golden copper of this ale makes it appear calm and reserved. But the citrus punch will make you want to get up and yell, GET OFF OUR LAWN!!!
Gonerfest XIII Session IPA (4.6 percent ABV)
You're welcome. This easy drinking session IPA clocks in at 4.6 percent ABV, and is screaming with hoppy goodness. Apollo, Denali, and Experimental #07270 hops come together to create a fruit basket for your face of pineapple, mango, and strawberries. This kitty is ready to rock. Meow!

This solid IPA gets its color and biscuity background from healthy dose of dark Munich malt, but Centennial hops are the star of the show. Centennial brings a deep tangerine and pine flavor, while not being overly bitter.
Oat Bar IPA (6.1 percent ABV)

Now for the twist: Pacific Gem hops from New Zealand, giving it a hop punch and a nice oaky background. Brewed for the Station 3: the Memphis Firehaus on the corner of Third and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
Fuzzbox IPA (6.2 percent ABV)

Lucid Kolsch (4.8 ABV)
A lawnmower beer with flavor. This pale golden German ale is light and crisp. Our original year-round beer, it has a slightly bready aroma and a spicy hop note from Herkules hops. Lucid is a versatile beer with food, going with anything from a salad to bratwurst.
Rocket #9 (6.1 percent ABV)

South Cooper Saison (5.7 percent ABV)
A brown saison and one of our inaugural beers. A simple malt bill of pale and chocolate malt allows the complex flavors of the yeast to be the shining star. Those complex flavors were further developed during a higher-than-normal fermentation temperature of 85 degrees, a good 15 degrees warmer than typical ales.
All Sewn Up (5.7 percent ABV)
An English Pale Ale made especially for the Lucero Family Picnic. Brewed with Target hops, a UK variety, All Sewn Up has a restrained bitterness with a bit of earthiness and spiciness. Made to be enjoyed throughout the show. Named after a song on Lucero's self-titled album.
RockBoneWood (6.2 percent ABV)
What beats Rock? RockBone. What beats RockBone? RockBoneWood. We delicately aged our RockBone IPA with American oak. The oak melds together with the Mosaic hops like they were meant to be together. Limited supply.
McFuggle (6.2 percent ABV)
This is what happens when a batch of Plaid ATTACK!!! has a one night stand with some Fuggle hops. This bastard child is nothing short of everything you’ve ever wanted in a Scottish IPA.
Waka Too (6.2 percent ABV)
An even hoppier version of our Waka Waka IPA, this beer is brewed exclusively with Wakatu hops. We also added lime to punch up the citrusy notes of this New Zealand hop. We've brewed this limited release IPA for Memphis Beer Week (April 18-25) and for Hopped, our beer release party being held at the brewery April 25.
Luke McLuke (6.2 percent ABV)
Brewed exclusively for Tennessee Brewery: The Revival, Luke McLuke is a thoroughbred American Pale Ale, just like its namesake, a horse owned by early brewery owner John Schorr. Brewed with a blend of Zythos and Simcoe, its mellow resin will wake up your taste buds, all the while reminding you of the winter that just passed.
Reverberation (5.8 percent ABV)
This Belgian style coffee stout is a collaboration with Memphis-based Reverb Coffee Co. The freshly roasted dark Sumatra coffee from Reverb accents the stout’s natural coffee flavors. At 5.8 percent ABV, this limited release beer is well suited for winter.
A base of Munich malt gives this brew a strong backbone to hold up all the flavors from the darker malts, the Belgian yeast, and the dark Sumatra coffee.
Oatmeal Stout (5.1 percent ABV)
Have you ever wanted to shove a bunch of silk into a pint glass and drink it? No? That's weird, we have. Anyway, here's your chance to get close to it. This delicately hopped and generously oated stout will have you begging for more, but it is a very limited release, so get some while you can.
Waka Waka IPA (5.7 percent ABV)
An unfiltered India Pale Ale brewed with Wakatu and Pacific Gem hops.
Business Time IPA (6 percent ABV)
You know the old saying: "It's Wednesday somewhere..." That means it's Business Time. This balanced IPA features the oak goodness of Pacific Gem hops from start to the happy ending. A dash of Munich malt provides just enough sweetness and color to get you in the mood. Best enjoyed with someone you love, but there's always an occasion to have one by yourself.
Guitar Attack IPA (5.8 percent ABV)
Brewed especially for Gonerfest 11, Guitar Attack is an aggressive beer. This bottled beer has a generous amount of Centennial hops. Enjoy during, before or after Gonerfest.
GBR (4.8 percent ABV)
Brewed especially for Gonerfest 11, GBR is a clean, crisp golden ale with a healthy dose of flaked corn. We decided to make it a true Memphis cream ale with a bunch of grits in the mash too.
Snipe Hunter Amber (5.7 percent ABV)
This hoppy, unfiltered amber is what you've been searching for. Generous amounts of Herkules and Fuggle hops balance out the malt bill, making this elusive Southern ale worth the hunt.
Bear Cat IPA (6 percent ABV)
An homage to the Rufus Thomas song of the same name, this unfiltered India Pale Ale is both cuddly and aggressive. Stupid amounts of hops were used to create a complex heady blend, that will leave you lapping up the last drop.
Bent Note IPA (6.1 percent ABV)
This spring IPA, featuring Nugget and a healthy portion of Delta hops, will wake your taste buds out of their winter slumber. It has a pleasant tropical fruit profile with some subtle earthiness. The hop flavor sustains like a long-held bent note. Pairs well with spicy foods.
Southern Julep (750 ml. bottle, 5.9 percent ABV)
A Belgian style brown ale brewed with fresh mint and aged with American oak. Great beer to drink while watching the Ketucky Derby in early May.
Cocoa Reverberation (5.8 percent)
A change to our Belgian coffee stout. This collaboration with locally-owned Reverb Coffee Co. still features freshly roasted dark Sumatra coffee. However, we added cocoa nibs to blend more chocolate notes with the coffee flavors. A base of Munich malt gives this brew a strong backbone to hold up all the flavors from the darker malts, the Belgian yeast, the coffee and the cocoa nibs.
Lights Out (4.2 percent ABV)
A dark Belgian style wit beer, the grain bill for Lights Out consists of more than 90 percent wheat darkened with chocolate malt. A light dash of First Gold hops brings balance to the chocolate notes, while Styrian Golding hops blend in with the bitter orange peel and coriander.
At 4.2 percent ABV, it’s a very sessionable beer, with hints of chocolate and orange adding some complexity to this seasonal.
Humbucker IPA (6.2 percent ABV)
Humbucker is brewed with Marris Otter and Carapils malts. It’s first wort hopped with Styrian Golding hops, bittered with Nugget hops, and liberally dosed with Amarillo hops for flavor and aroma. We packed 1.7 pounds of hops per barrel into this 6.2% ABV hopsickle. Just like its guitar pickup namesake, Humbucker cancels out the typical over bitterness of an American IPA and lets the pure flavor and aroma of the hops shine through. Amarillo is hard to get a hold of these days, so enjoy this one while it lasts.
Harvest Porter (6.2 percent ABV)
Harvest Porter is a lighter-than-normal porter with a slight nuttiness and hints of chocolate. This beer style, which has been around since head brewer Drew Barton made it up, consists of Marris Otter, chocolate and melanoidin malts balanced with East Kent Goldings and Fuggle hops.
Parkways Pale Ale (5.2 percent ABV)
A distinctive American Pale Ale. Nugget hops deliver a initial herbal punch, while Delta hops round out the flavor and aroma with its spicy and slightly sweet citrus notes. This beer gets its name from Memphis' parkway system, three streets which, with the Mississippi River, formed one of the city's earliest boundaries.
